18th birthday

Hi Everyone, got my winter slippers on while I write this, brrrrrrrrr!  even the May blossom is refusing to come out in these parts.  Oh! well, me old Mum always said "don't cast a clout  'til May is out", which when we were young, meant no vest off until 1st of June, perhaps she was right LOL.

Anyhow, sorry I've been AWOL again, I have been struggling big time with a card I had to do, which will be featured on another post.  When I am at peace with it.

My offering to you today is a card that was requested by my boss for her son.  The criteria was - messy room, music, art and art!   Of course PS had a lot to do with this.
The papers and elements are from "For Caleb" a digi kit from a combination of artists  at Digital Scrapbooking Studio, the drummer is from Vintage Images, the sentiment is from Create at TLC and the font on his name is KR Back to School.  I cut the 18 on my Cricut and Stickled it.  Something quite different I think, for me anyway.  Oh! yes I 3D'd a the arrows and the 18.

I am entering the following challenges

Well this really fits the bill Faith. You've done a brilliant job - I wouldn't have known where to start. We are off on holiday to Northumberland today but I don't think I'll be packing the sun cream !!
